Customer Question
02 trailblazer was hard...

02 trailblazer was hard to start after getting gas. The RPM's are revving high and the the acceleration is sluggish. it took a while for the thermostat to move from 100 to 210.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Some days it starts fine then after stopping and getting back in to go again i may have an issue with it starting again. it's not all the time.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Trailblazer yourself? What have you tried so far?

No. i plan to take it to my mechanic. i normally try seafoam and it usually does the trick. i havent tried this time. today was the first time it started idling high like that.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Hig rpm's, sluggish accelerattion and a whinining noise every time the truck accelerates.
